Indian Summer is one of my favorite times of the year, those warm days at the beginning of autumn when it still feels like summer, but only somewhat more pleasant. The sun is still warm and bright, and the evenings cool down inviting blankets, sweaters, and possibly a fire, although the heat has broken. It’s the beginning of scotch season.
This year I have returned to one of my old favorites, Glenfiddich, the Speyside single malt that is always a joy to share with friends. I packed up a few of my favorite bottles (the 12 year, the 14 year, and the IPA Cask), and Seattle based photographer Victoria Wright and I took to the road. We stayed in a charming cabin in southwestern Colorado and had a proper girl’s getaway.
We partnered with Glenfiddich because we wanted to catch women drinking whisky how we drink whisky – passionately. We are two girls who love a good dram it makes us feel more feminine and yet strong at exactly the same time.
For me, every different mark is so uniquely special. The 12 year old is fresh, fruity, and delicate, the 14 is strong and decadent with flavors of caramel and cocoa, and the IPA Cask is such a great mixture of the fresh hoppy flavors in an IPA and the fruity flavors of Glenfiddich 12 year old. It’s almost as though each bottle has its place and its time – every sip cementing a moment into memory.
